Any chance of a doc that helps us follow along?  Im not suggesting posting Adesks, but in your own words.  Reason I ask, is when you get to Lab03, Im stuck with why it wont work, and maybe if the doc were written better, I could figure out what Im doing wrong.

Everyone has a photographic memory, Some just don't have film.
They say money can't buy happiness, but it can buy Bacon and that's a close second.
Sometimes the question is more important than the answer. (Thanks Kerry for reminding me)

Hi CmdrDuh,

Yep, Lab 3 has a lot behind it .. The first lab dealing with the DataBase.
I know they forgot about those of us working in metric .. wasn't important, just couldn't get the blocks to look the same untill I realised that the MTEXT size should be changed.

I've popped you an email which may answer the question you have.

I'm a bit pushed for time to write a doc, but will sure try to address any questions you have , though keep in mind that I'm learning too, and some answers may not be as definitive as we'd like :-)

wow. Nice Kerry,

I would make one suggestion to promote scalability.

Seperate the helper methods in a seperate project / projects. The student would have completed something to directly use in thier own projects when finished with the labs.

Of course you would have to return items to the calling methods. For example, you could add entity type parameter to the GetEntity and return the entity and / or a bool to let the calling method know what happened.

again, Thanks.

Hi Draftek,
I agree, seperation /modularization is the way to go generally.

I've found working with the Labs to be sortof evolutionary,  "ok, that works, now what if .." sort'a. Before you know it there's 5 different versions of the same method, and half a dozen obscure test routines to take care of. I think once I learn to come to grips with managing that I'll be fine.

I'm looking forward to getting the full version of VS2005 ... not being able to debug with the 2005Express versions < though I do change back to VS2003> is a real bummer, particularly for an old lisper who is used to a bit more transparency.
